it's just one of those days...

Anna NEVER wakes up at night... she goes down by about 7pm and sleeps until 7am. But last night, I awoke to the sound of her screaming around 4:45am... so I knew something was wrong. I popped out of bed and ran into her room- and the smell that greeted me as I opened the door was nearly overpowering! I knew right away that she must be sick... nothing else would explain the potent odor coming from her diaper. I scooped her up and laid her on the changing table, and proceeded to clean up the explosion. I stripped the crib sheet, changed her PJ's and laid her back down... she was alseep again as soon the Desitin hit her badly rashed skin!
So we both got a few more hours of sleep, and at 7:20 I went in to get her. I took her temp 100.5, not too bad. I plopped her in her highchair and made her oatmeal. I have been trying to give her a chance to use the spoon, and so I let her have a go at it again this morning. As you can see, we have our work cut out for us!
It wasn't long before my poor sick baby began to show us how she felt.
We had use of the truck this morning, and our empty fridge meant that we HAD to go to the grocery store. We have to go as a family because I can't drive a stick... so we loaded up and headed out. Anna was holding up... I could tell she was struggling to keep it together. So, like any rational, frugal parent, I bought her a doll to make her feel better. She was so excited when we got home and I handed it to her. She carried it all around until it was time for a nap!

It's not even 2:30, and poor Anna has already had a pretty rough day. We'll see how the rest of the day goes!
